    How many forum members does it take to change a lightbulb

    A friend posted this on another forum. It's soo good I had to share.

    How many forum members does it take to change a lightbulb?
    One to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed.

    Fourteen to share similar experiences of changing lightbulbs and how the lightbulb could have been changed differently.

    Seven to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.

    Seven more to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs.

    Three to correct spelling/grammar errors.

    Fore to spelle evere singel wird in the poste rong and ezpect evrywon to nowe wut thare sayin anywaye.

    Six to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb".

    Another six to condemn those six as stupid.

    Fifteen to claim experience in the lighting industry and give the correct spelling.

    Nineteen to post that this group is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb (or light bulb) forum.

    Eleven to defend the posting to the group saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this group.

    Thirty six to debate which method of changing lightbulbs is superior, where to buy the best lightbulbs, what brand of lightbulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty.

    Seven to post URLs where one can see examples of different lightbulbs.

    Four to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL.

    Three to post URLs found when following the aforementioned URLs.

    Thirteen to quote 5-paragraph posts in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and then add "Me too", "+1 " or "".

    Five to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot mentally handle the lightbulb controversy, or because the question will just encourage a popularity contest or a "steel base vs. plastic base" discussion.

    Four to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

    Thirteen to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting easy questions about light bulbs."

    Three to tell a funny story about their cat and a light bulb.

    Nine to ramble on about how those liberal ******** want to take away all lightbulbs, and then sum it all up with a lame pun about Rosie O'Donnell choking on a 'fish taco'.

    Twenty-four to read the first half of the post, and then answer a question NOBODY ASKED!!!

    Five who get pissed over a joke that they probably didn't get in the first place.

    Fifteen to argue which is more important; wattage or bulb placement.

    Four to say that they only buy custom made lightbulbs.

    Three to say that they buy cheap bulbs that are just as good as the custom made ones, but that way they have extra money for lampshades.

    Five to ask the infamous "can a +P wattage bulb be used in my socket?" question.

    AND

    One group lurker to respond to the original post 9 months from now with something entirely unrelated, starting it all over again
    “You come at me with a sword and with a spear. But I come at you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you". 1 Samuel 17, 45-46

    You left out:

    4 to blame the war in Iraq, the President, inflation, and immigration laws for the bulb going out in the first place, and how it's a conspiracy linked to area 51.

    Don't forget some have to argue about using those bulbs with all metal bases, or those new fangled plastic ones.

    Load your own bulbs?

    60 watts v 75 watts. Is more really better?

    One person claiming that light bulbs don't exist and that it is all a Skull and Bones conspiracy.

    There is only one 191lightbulb no other plastic bulb could even closer compare to imagination and creativity that went into the making of the 19lIghtbulb. I have heard, seen in the movies, that by just looking at this 19lIghtbulb you can exactly measure the light output of this lightbulb in .002 of a second and tell how much light is being transmitted making you pass out immediatly. Just looking at the 19lIghtbulb while turned off will make you tremble in fear.

    When lightbulbs are outlawed, only outlaws will read at night.
